Goodnight Moon

Finally, I took a little time to work on the quilt I am making for my great niece for Chistmas....yes, it is December 1st. Still plenty of time to finish, right?! Eekkk! 

Here is the top:
For some reason it looks very busy in the pictures. It is very bright but not as busy as it appears in these photos. At least I don't think so...

And here is the back:
Maybe I like the back better? I just pieced some fabrics I had in my stash, an extra wonky star, and a strip of goodnight moon fabric to tie it to the front theme. I like it!
And I have the binding made! Yea!! I can't wait to attach it to the quilt. I love the stripes ❤️

Maybe over the weekend I can get it sandwiched and start quilting. I am planning to quilt it myself on my little sewing machine. I haven't decided if I will stitch in the ditch or free motion quilt or do some wavy lines. 

I saved a bit of the goodnight moon fabric to make a dolly quilt and I also have enough of that sweet striped fabric to use for binding a doll quilt too!     

I hope that Goodnight Moon is not to young for an almost three year old, and also that it isn't too boy-ish. It would have been perfect for a little boy and I am kind of wishing I would have figured out a way to make it a little more girlie. But I like the colors and Goodnight Moon so hopefully so will my great niece. And yes, she will be getting the book to go with her quilt!
